Supplementary English Enhancement for Postgraduates

  1. Course Synopsis 

This course targets the English language skills of students whose English proficiency test results have not attained the standards for admission. To maximize learning outcomes, the course covers a variety of in-class and out-of-class teacher input and student assignments. Upon completion of the course, students will take an examination modelled upon IELTS in terms of format and standard. While the course targets general language skills, there will be more in-class hours and teacher-student consultative hours on productive skills (writing and speaking). Receptive skills such as reading will be strengthened through structured out-of-class or online learning activities.
